Do You Understand NOW? LeBron James Speaks Out on George Floyd's Death

FBI investigating in-custody death of black man in Minneapolis

Thousands of people have gathered in Minneapolis at the site of George Floyd's violent arrest a day earlier. "He didn't discriminate, whether you were hispanic, you were black, you were white, he treated everybody with respect and that's what I love about him", Jovani Thunstrom told CBSN Minnesota.

"There can not be two justice systems, one for black America and one for white America", he said.

A video of a handcuffed black man dying while a Minneapolis officer knelt on his neck for more than five minutes has sparked a fresh furore in the U.S. over police treatment of African Americans.

46-year-old Floyd died during his arrest leading to his sister Bridget Floyd calling for the four officers involved to be charged with murder as protests are breaking out and investigations into his death have been launched.

"I've wrestled with, more than anything else over the last 36 hours, one fundamental question: Why is the man who killed George Floyd not in jail?" One of the officers kneeled on his neck, despite Floyd's repeated pleas that he could not breathe. The officers were advised that the suspect "appeared to be under the influence" and that he "physically resisted officers".

In the video, Floyd appears to lose consciousness and was later pronounced dead at the Hennepin Medical Center in Minneapolis.

Newcastle takeover in doubt as WTO rules Saudi Arabia behind pirate channel
That test can be failed if owners were thought to be in violation of United Kingdom law, even if it was committed overseas . It all comes down to illegal pirating of the league's television coverage in Saudi Arabia through a company called beoutQ.

The officers involved were responding to a report of a forgery in progress, and found a man fitting the suspect's description in a auto, according to a police department account.

But "I saw no threat", Frey said.

That incident was one of a series of killings of black men by USA police officers that gave fuel to the "Black Lives Matter" movement, which campaigns against violence and systemic racism towards black people. "The Minnesota Department of Public Safety Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) is investigating the circumstances surrounding an incident during which a man died while being taken into custody by Minneapolis Police Department officers", the Minnesota Department of Public Safety announced in a statement obtained by HollywoodLife on May 26.

The Floyd incident recalled the 2014 choking death of New Yorker Eric Garner by police.

Some more consistency would be nice, but we'll take it. Frey asked during a news conference.

"And by the way, black men have been put in prison before for far, far less", he added.
